The Circle of Ostara - Loki (1996) [excerpt]:

...As the Dark Age progresses Loki gains strength in material powers but loses the love, the compassion, that alone can make the use of our technical ability an activity in harmony with nature and the Earth.

That we have allowed ourselves to become enslaved by the monstrous money system is Loki's doing. He has given us into their hands, he has become their servant. The powers behind this "system" have great cunning and tell powerful lies but their actual creative abilities are very limited. They can take over the technology created by others and use it to great destructive effect, but the ability to build such a technology themselves is lacking. Our abilities, our inventive genius, have been delivered up to them - by Loki. We have been enticed into a trap.

We can see the tale of Loki's Brood as a parable for our times, see Fenris Wolf as technology, a force that began as the gentle servant of man but which grew strong and ever stronger and difficult to control until now it breaks loose and seems poised to devour us. We can see the World Serpent, Jormungandr, as the great strangling system of international finance that controls all nations and all races, a system that Thor's Hammer must needs destroy if any race or nation is to survive the cataclysmic future, a destruction that will "shake the world". Loki is our enemy, an enemy that lies within ourselves. As a spirit of invention he was of wonderful benefit to us so long as we held true to the pattern of our racial destiny, so long as we maintained our love and reverence for nature and the Earth and lived close to the divine spirits of our people.

Loki is manfest in each of us and must be fought there - in our own minds and souls. We must take care not to be part of Loki's Brood. Many children of this god reveal themselves by truckling to the rulers of the system, by accepting its lies and manipulation, by living for pleasure alone and physical sensation, by refusing to take risks even when they recognise the enemy. The Hel-hags of "women's lib" are part of Loki's Brood and all the anti-life forces of homosexuality and the touters of abortion.

The Circle of Ostara is dedicated to the overthrow of Loki's Brood.

Loki's Monstrous Brood

Loki's Monstrous Brood, from D'Aulaires' book of Norse Myths, 1967.

Loki, the God of the Jotun Race

When Odin was still young - before he had hanged himself on Yggdrasil and drunk from the Well of Wisdom - his eyes had fallen on a jotun named Loki. He was graceful and handsome, not uncouth and misshapen like most of his race. Many jotuns could change themselves in wolves or eagles, but Loki could take on any shape he wished, even female ones. Nimble-witted and bright, full of clever ideas, Loki was like a flickering, shining flame, and Odin was so taken with him that he asked him to be his blood brother. Loki gladly accepted the offer. So each cut a small vein in his arm and, letting their blood flow together, they solemnly swore to be as true brothers from then on. They would stand by each other, defend each other, and never accept a favor unless it was also offered to the other.

Thus Loki, the jotun, became one of the Aesir and moved up to Asgard, where the great and holy ones welcomed him. Thor especially liked to have cunning Loki at his side, for Thor was not quite as quick-thinking as he was fast-acting. Loki helped him out of many a scrape, but he also got him into some.

Odin gave Loki one of the goddesses, Sigunn, for his wife. She was loving and kind and very patient with her fickle husband. But in Jotunheim, Loki had another wife, the dreadful ogress Angerboda. She was a better match for him, for, as the Aesir soon found out, Loki was really vicious and spiteful. He loved to play mean tricks, and it didn't matter to him whom he tricked. Neither Aesir nor jotuns could trust him, and he was always causing trouble.

But Loki was so quick-witted and honey-tongued that the Aesir always forgave him his misdeeds. Besides, Odin's blood flowed in his veins and no one dared to harm him.
